The Andrews University Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) team were named regional champions at the annual SIFE competition held at the Hyatt O’Hare Hotel in Rosemont, Ill. on Thursday, April 8, 2010. As a result, they are eligible to participate in the National Competition to be held in Minneapolis May 11-13, 2010.

The team presented the projects they had successfully completed this year before more than a dozen industry judges. Projects included, among others: “Teach a Student about Business” and the “Moving Forward in Style” programs conducted at the Fairplain Alternative Academy in Benton Harbor; computer training as part of the Bridges to Digital Excellence program in Benton Harbor; a business plan for I-SEE (an organization that provides low cost eye glasses for start-up businesses in developing countries); and participation in the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) project which helps low-income individuals in Berrien County prepare their annual state and federal taxes at no cost.

This year’s SIFE team that went to competition consisted of Daniel Tyron (AU SIFE President), Chible Coleman, Crystal Giem, Anthony Jones, Timothy McWilliams, Angela Rollins, Noel Salgado, Jessica Wilson, and Nicole Wortham. They were assisted by SIFE faculty advisors, Ann Gibson, professor of accounting, and Charles Tidwell, professor of English.
